No surprise here, considering who their mom is, but Tinsley Mortimer's rescue dogs are kind of a big deal in Chicago. After the Real Housewives of New York City cast member moved to the Windy City to be with fiancé Scott Kluth, it appears her pooches, Strawberry and Shortcake, have taken the town by storm. You see, they appear on a billboard. Yes, a billboard.
"Such a proud mommy! Strawberry [and] Shortcake were the stars of the show in @peta’s ‘Buy Shoes, Not Dogs’ campaign now on billboards throughout Chicago. Rescuing these two little girls from China has brought me so much joy," she wrote about her dogs' fame.
Tinsley spoke to The Daily Dish earlier this year about her life in the Midwest. "I actually really love Chicago. Even when it was off and on for about three years we dated and I came to Chicago lots of times," she said in a phone interview conducted earlier this season (more in the video above). "I am a city girl and I love New York, obviously, so much. Chicago's like a smaller New York and it's great... I'm very happy here."
In fact, her dogs are really stepping up and finding fame working to bring attention to animal rescue, which is a pretty awesome way to become a household name if you ask us.
